Drugs found in “Del Boy” Hutch’s system after high-speed crash injures Ukrainian refugee

Derek ‘Del Boy’ Hutch has been arrested by Gardaí on suspicion of dangerous driving under the influence after he crashed into a woman on his motorbike.

The convicted killer, 37, was recently questioned by officers at Dublin’s Store Street Garda station after his blood sample was returned to the Gardaí investigative body after testing positive for cannabis.

Investigators have now sent a filing to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) recommending that Gerry “The Monk” Hutch’s nephew be prosecuted in connection with the crash.

A Ukrainian woman suffered serious head injuries in the collision on Amiens Street in the city center on Friday, May 27 at noon. She had recently fled her war-torn homeland.

“Cannabis isn’t necessarily the main issue, but it’s part of the dangerous driving charge,” a source said.

“The main problem is that he was driving at such high speed – like a bat out of hell – when he hit the poor unsuspecting woman.

“There is good video surveillance of the accident and also evidence from specific crime scenes proving he was driving extremely fast and recklessly. The Garda case against Del Boy is considered very strong,” a source said.

Hutch is charged with making a U-turn away from Gardaí just before the collision, sparking an investigation by the Garda Ombudsman.

It is understood that in Fairview, about 2km from the scene of the crime, Hutch spotted gardaí looking for a well-known North Dublin crime boss known as ‘Mr Big’.

Investigators are unsure if Hutch was meant to meet Mr. Big when he spotted Gardaí and fled, or if it was just a coincidence.

“Officials conducting the search of Mr Big in Fairview were unaware it was Del Boy on a bike – but alerted them to a man on a motorcycle making a very obvious and suspicious turn. But there was no car chase in Garda,” the source added.

Hutch passed an alcohol breath test at the scene of the accident. He suffered minor injuries but was taken to the hospital where investigators secured a routine blood sample.

“There was no car chase – but despite this, Gardaí decided to refer the matter to the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) as this could be seen as a possible Garda interaction with Hutch prior to the crash,” a senior source explained.

Derek ‘Del Boy’ Hutch has been heavily involved in organized crime for years.

He was released from prison last year after serving long sentences for manslaughter and armed robbery.
